A list of the best Elton John songs, ranked by fans like you. Sir Elton Hercules John CBE has a humongous catalog, filled with hits, underrated gems, and crocodiles. But what are the best Elton John songs? Whether you're an early Bernie Taupin-era purist, into the sparkly '90s/2000s years, or you just think "Tiny Dancer" is pretty, cast your votes below for the best of Elton John's hits.

Elton John has released dozens of studio albums and contributed to the soundtracks and scores for films and Broadway musicals. From "Levon" to "Daniel," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" to "Rocket Man," and even underrated Elton John songs like "Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters," this definitive ranking of the top Elton John songs is shaped by you. Vote up your favorite Elton John songs and vote down the ones you of which you have never understood the appeal.

I have chosen to not include any songs from the soundtrack for the Disney animated film The Lion King on this list. "Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" is a very nice song, but let's stay focused.
